I gave a pre-test this week. You know, one of those where they will look at the test and pretest and evaluate me on the growth of the students.
Some of the questions were beyond flawed.
Compare _____________to ______________ and state the relationship.
And, yes, the blanks were how they appeared on the test - non-questions with non-answers.
And somehow my students could answer these questions. Probability being what it is, they even got some of them right (according to the answer key because I sure couldn't tell).
But I am certain this will be a valid assessment of my ability.
